The University of the Third Age has a worldwide presence. There are a lot of elderly people around the world who don’t have a lot of things in life. These people just sit in their seats and do nothing, this might seem fun in the beginning but after some time it starts to get frustrating. Everyone needs a hobby and fun way to pass the time and the U3A does just that for the elderly citizens. Although there is no age limit on who can become a member of the U3A, most of the people that you see do belong to the senior citizen’s category.
U3A has a lot of benefits and that is why it has taken the world by storm. To become a member of the U3A, the person should be retired and not be doing any part time job. This is because the U3A requires its members to take part in daily meetings to carry out certain activities. However, there is no restriction on who can join the U3A. Even if you are not retired you may join the U3A, no one will do a background check. The only drawback will be that you will not be able to attend those important meetings.
